D/ST rankings for Week 3 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best D/STs going in Week 3 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

Last week Kirk Cousins was quite giving to the Indianapolis Colts, as he threw for three interceptions and no touchdowns and took a safety to give the Colts the most D/ST points for the week. The Ravens weren’t far behind, as they sacked DeShaun Watson four times and returned an interception for a touchdown. This week Houston faces the Steelers defensive line, which just isn’t fair.

The Steelers sacked the Broncos quarterback seven times and knocked Drew Lock out of the game in the process. Watson is going to be running for his life this week. The Buccaneers got to Teddy Bridgwater five times and this week they get that Broncos offensive line and Jeff Driskel to attack.

The 49ers get a nice matchup with the Giants but they did lose Nick Bosa, Solomon Thomas and Dee Ford last week. The Colts go from Kirk Cousins to Sam Darnold and a Jets team that has absolutely no playmakers on offense.

Streaming D/ST

Buccaneers vs. Broncos

As I said above, this matchup is great for the Bucs, as they get Driskel and an offensive line that just gave up seven sacks to the Steelers.

Titans vs. Vikings

The Vikings offense lost an integral cog with Stefon Diggs this offseason and Cousins really only has Adam Thielen to throw to. Unless he can get things going, this could be a long season for the “how do you like that” man.
